The students got both excited and nervous as the head of the district administration began taking mathematics lessons.
"I taught mathematics and another subject. I found majority of students academically good. I gauged good grasping power and inquisitiveness in them. I had decided to devote about half-an-hour for teaching. As children evinced interest, I had to extend classroom teaching to 90 minutes," said Kendrapara Collector Dasarathi Satpathy.
Some students were found weak in mathematics and the school authorities were asked to pay special attention towards them, he said.
"The classroom teaching done by me formed the part of 'Mo School Abhiyan' lunched by the State government. Under the novel scheme, we have called upon academicians to voluntarily teach the students," he said.
